Albeit small, the museum houses over 200 products across 2 levels of design galleries in the glass building. The specially curated exhibition Human-Nature showcases design works across disciplines including innovative products, research concepts, communication works and art. In the museum’s Permanent Collection, a selection of the winners of the Red Dot Design Awards from across the years are presented.
Now exhibiting until 20th September 2019
An exhibition of good design, with parallel questioning of the nature of being human in a world where we achieved enhanced abilities through technology and algorithm, where humans co-exist with robots, machine learning and big data.
The exhibition begins with an introspective probe on how humans perceive robots. Do they have souls? Where in some parts of the world humans believe inanimate objects are considered to be just as alive as the animate, will robots be accepted as companions, members of society rather than mere tools or threats?
Award winning design works can be found in the museum’s Permanent Collection, the museum shop and throughout the museum. Every year, design experts from all over the world decide the best products, design concepts and communication design works to be awarded
Only the best designs pass through the rigorous adjudication process to receive the coveted Red Dot quality seal – and thus their deserved place in the Red Dot Design Museum. The permanent collection consists of products which have been awarded the Red Dot Award for Product Design and can be found throughout the museum.
